Dearest Family and Friends,

We think of you fondly during this Christmas Season. Tonight Charlie and I attended our Church’s Candle Light Service. There I heard a new song, a glorious song, so beautifully arranged and sung that I felt caught, drawn into the heart of a young fair woman enthralled by her Son.

Bethlehem Down

When He is King we will give Him the Kings’ gifts,
   Myrrh for its sweetness, and gold for a crown.
  Beautiful robes, said the young girl to Joseph,
  Fair with her first-born on Bethlehem Down.
    Bethlehem Down is full of the starlight-
Winds for the spices, and stars for the gold,
  Mary for sleep, and for lullaby music
Songs for a Shepherd by Bethlehem fold.
When He is King they will clothe Him in grave-sheets,
  Myrrh for embalming, and wood for a crown,
He that lies now in the white arms of Mary,
Sleeping so lightly on Bethlehem Down.
Here He has peace and a short while for dreaming,
  Close-huddled oxen to keep him from cold. 
  Mary for love, and for lullaby music 
 Songs of a Shepherd by Bethlehem fold. 

 Charlie and I wish all of you a Happy Christmas. May His love enthral you and draw you close to Him

There are two pictures. The first is from this past Sunday at St. Luke’s. The little girl at the 10 am Family Service made ‘crackers’ with us. Her name is Abby. The second is Grandmother and Sam at the NYC Museum of Natural History. I love how they ‘look’ alike
